Subject: [patch 03/16] Revert "kbuild: avoid static_assert for genksyms"
Date: Tue, 29 Dec 2020 15:14:28 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201229231428.LFmw8Z6A1%akpm@linux-foundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201229151349.3285926ec0d1f65a27ac8534@linux-foundation.org>

Subject: Revert "kbuild: avoid static_assert for genksyms"

This reverts commit 14dc3983b5dff513a90bd5a8cc90acaf7867c3d0.

Macro Elver had sent a fix proper fix earlier, and also pointed out
corner cases:

"I guess what you propose is simpler, but might still have corner cases
where we still get warnings. In particular, if some file (for whatever
reason) does not include build_bug.h and uses a raw _Static_assert(),
then we still get warnings. E.g. I see 1 user of raw _Static_assert()
(drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgv_sriovmsg.h )."

I believe the raw use of _Static_assert() should be allowed, so this
should be fixed in genksyms.

Even after commit 14dc3983b5df ("kbuild: avoid static_assert for
genksyms"), I confirmed the following test code emits the warning.

  ---------------->8----------------
  #include <linux/export.h>

  _Static_assert((1 ?: 0), "");

  void foo(void) { }
  EXPORT_SYMBOL(foo);
  ---------------->8----------------

  WARNING: modpost: EXPORT symbol "foo" [vmlinux] version generation failed, symbol will not be versioned.

Now that commit 869b91992bce ("genksyms: Ignore module scoped
_Static_assert()") fixed this issue properly, the workaround should
be reverted.
